Rolex Vintage GMT Master 6542 No Crown Guard No Bakelite

Sold out

This watch is 100% original, has never been polished, serviced in 1986, has never been painted and has original plexiglass on it.

Bezel: The support ring is original but as the Bakelite insert broke, it was replaced with an aftermarket insert that sits a bit lower than the original bakelite. The missing Bakelite bezel is the only problem with this watch, everything else is exactly what was installed back in the 1950's.

Dial: The minute hand has paint chipped off, but all other paint is in original condition.  The dial is in amazing condition. Minute marker 20 has a scuff.  Hands are scratching the dial between 15-20.  Brown (Tropical) spot between 40-50.  Hands in general show signs of corrosion.  R letter in Rolex, as well as a couple of other places show a silver paint over the golden paint.  Obviously it no longer glows in the dark, except the seconds hand which would need some consideration why.  Dial has never been re-painted.  There are 2 small nicks on the dial only visible upon close inspection.

Movement: The movement in this watch feels perfect, and the patina on it is typical of such an old watch.  It is the correct movement for this watch functioning perfectly, the date clicks smoothly and colors look good.  

Bracelet: The bracelet on this watch is the correct one for this model and it is the actual bracelet that was installed in the 1950's.  It is very tight, almost brand new.  This bracelet has springs that make the bracelet stretch, those springs feel like new.
